Fast Track Systems Monitor (FTMON) is a monitoring engine that can be integrated with other systems management vendor solutions. It also defines a standard that allows applications/devices to be instrumented rapidly. The intent is to allow writing an FTMON monitor for virtually every device or application, and that any detected problems from these monitors will be able to be forwarded to any systems management solution. It is currently completely configuration file based.
UFOClock draws an astronomical clock. From it you can read the time of day, phase of the lunar month, ratio of day to night, time until a solstice or equinox, and time until the end or beginning of twilight. The time of day depends on your location on the surface of the Earth, which you can enter on the command line or in a dotfile in your home directory. Location can be given as latitude/longitude or ZIP code. It is called UFO clock because it sort of looks like crop circles. It is based on Sundial by George Williams. It requires GLUT installed to run and the NOVAS library to build.
The givetake package provides two small programs, give and take. These two small programs enable your users to give or take files to or from other users. PAM is used to know whether the user should be able to give or take another user's file(s). This means that you can use whatever authentication method you want.
The XMMS Picture Viewer Input Plugin adds picture support to XMMS for various image formats. The picture is displayed for a (configurable) time. In conjunction with XMMS playlists, this makes it possible to create slideshows very easily, e.g. opening a directory that contains picture files directly starts the slideshow.
